  1. Managing Yard walkers

    General Halloween
    So, I have been having more and more issues with people walking through the yard display to get pictures either with props or in my yard. If I had a section for that it's ok, and we will usually have one or two props easily accessible for this reason. However its getting worse over the years...

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    I just read an article about how the Costume Industry is taking off. They claim that 1/3 of American adults plan to dress up on Halloween this year, a number that I totally disbelieve. So, True or False - In the US, one in three adults will dress up this Halloween. What say you?
